Breakfast Cookies

When I found a recipe for Breakfast Cookies at I was hoping that it would solve two breakfast dilimas for us.  1.) Jordan is not a breakfast guy because he gets up so early.  He feels like eating after he has been at work for a couple of hours and then ends up snacking on junk.  2.) Sunday mornings are a rush for us to get out the door so we do cereal, but even after eating three bowls my little people burn through it in less than two hours and are "starving."  (Yes, they are dramatic.  They get it from their dad! ;) )  We tried these this week and they were a hit with all the men in the family so away we go.  Here is our family's adaptation.

Breakfast Cookies (6 dozen)

1 cup honey
1 cup brown sugar (or sucanant)
3/4 cup coconut oil (I think that you could use butter or palm shortening here)
3/4 cup olive oil
4 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup ground flax seed meal
3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
5 cups rolled oats
1 cup nuts
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°.  In large mixing bowl, combine honey, sugar, and oil. Blend well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by Tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes or until set. Cool on rack.
